the latest nbc news "wall street journal" poll shows americans overwhelmingly blame republicans for the government shutdown. you may be wondering tonight, okay, what's in a number. there isn't a politician on the face of the earth that doesn't love to look at a trend or feel good about a number or take something positive out of a poll and build on it. there's a lot to build on here for the republicans, because this is total rejection of their agenda. the american people basically are saying, they reject john boehner. they reject his agenda. his methods, his messaging, his strategy. they reject the fact that the republican party is obstructing operational government. the poll also reveals that americans reject the fringe ideology of the american-day republican party. this tells it all. boehner is famous for saying he knows where the american people are, and what they want. >> the american people want us to build the keystone pipeline. the american people want us to cut spending. >> this law is driving up the cost of health care and making it harder for small business to hire people.
